There is a buzz of excitement at the Farm this week as myself and Tim prepare to go to the annual Soil Association Organic Food Festival in Bristol, on Saturday 11 September. We will be attending the event and receiving the award for the best organic meat (from none other than the lovely Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall!!) for our home reared lamb. It has been described by the judges as “Smooth and tender with a lovely wallop of flavour.” and “Soft and melts in your mouth.”
Lamb is particularly tasty at this time of year as the subtlety of its flavour changes to suit the seasons. Late Summer vegetables such as aubergines and tomatoes really compliment lamb and bring out the flavour. Over the Autumn months the richer flavour develops and is perfect for a lamb stew or a traditional roast lamb.
If you want to just try our lamb for the first time, our Lamb Lovers Taster Box is a great choice, you can get one here. Or, if you’d like to stock up for the Winter months ahead, you can get half a lamb here.
Our beef hasn’t been without recognition this month either as it scooped a Bronze in the Taste of the West Awards for beef steak. In addition, our newest product Salt Beef was awarded a Silver.
Next month we aim to launch our new loyalty scheme following the feedback we received from you in the survey you kindly did a while ago. Watch out on our website for more details and to find out how you can benefit from offers and discounts!
It has been a busy month here for us but we look forward to hearing from you soon, and to find out what you think about the lamb.
Best Wishes from Jo, Tim and all at Higher Hacknell Farm
